a new target. mark, thanks a lot. >>> the president is on the road again today in iowa and virginia. last night in wisconsin, he proved he can still get tens of thousands of young people to show up at a rally. but can he get them to vote? >> the biggest mistake we could make right now is to let disappointment or frustration lead to apathy and indifference. we are bringing about change, and progress is going to come. but you've got to stick with me. you can't lose heart. >> mike viqueira is travel with the president. he's in des moines, iowa, this morning. so mike seems like he really packed in a crowd last night. what was the message? >> well, after the scolding came the pleading you guys. the day after he told them to buck up and that they had to get to the polls to vote in november, he really was a full-throated plea from the president to his base which include many of the college students and the youth mark was just talking about that are disaffected, that are apathetic that the president was speaking to last night. was a full-on campaign-stril production. they had cranes, jib ca

virginia is one of them. take a listen. >> i think what we need to be doing right now is holding the line on taxes, not letting anybody's taxes go up at least until we see the end of this terrible recession. i think it's a pretty simple idea. there are a number of other folks here, also, on the democratic side that agree with me on this. and you know, i led a letter along with some other members, 31 signatures on it among the democrats here that said it's not the time to raise anybody's taxes. >> so what about that? >> yeah, no, i was talking to jerry connolly on monday who was at a town hall with president obama, president obama was there, talking about not wanting to extend these for, for the upper income folks, and jerry connolly was there, saying, hey, he'd want to extend these for everyone, at least temporarily because he thinks that the recovery is too fragile. so it's not just about republicans, it's almost kind of like you've got a revolt among democrats who are also saying that maybe this recovery is too fragile for a tax hike at this point. they've got a problem on their hands.

, that is a republican's pledge to america. they rolled it out. they went to a hardware store out in sterling, virginia, what do you make of it? >> i think it is less interesting as a governing agenda as it is as kind of a rorschach test. mainstream moderate republicans and conservatives seem to bell come that. we are enthusiastic about telephone. precisely because it's not particularly bold, not particularly dangerous or controversial it really overturns the obama agenda. but tea party, the hard-core of the tea party was very critical of the pledge. for the same reasons. because it wasn't bold enough. they don't want to just overturn the obama agenda. they want to overturn broad layers of the u.s. government. i think that that presents a problem for republicans if they win the house between those that really want to take down the whole building and those that want to govern an effective wage. it's going to be a serious conflict. >> so we are getting a look at what could happen down the road. >> i think it is more of a political document than sort of a vague blueprint for governing. i mean they finesse

elections in the state of virginia and new jersey and the state formally known as massachusetts has a republican member of the united states senate. [applause] to these conservative victories we have when harry met shelly playing in nevada. joe the senator in alaska, delaware is about to send conservative to the united states senate as well. [applause] as we say, on highway 40 where i it? up, who'd have thunk even republicans in congress have gotten back to fiscal discipline and conservative values. agos be honest, four years republicans in congress did not just lose their majority. they lost breakaway. lost their way. when i opposed the wall street bailout, i told my colleagues the american people would eventually go with the professionals if we kept acting like liberals. sadly, they did. the truth is our party in congress walk away from the principles that minted our national governing majority. if the american people walked away from that. house republicans, have they learned their lesson? people ask me that. after a year that saw every single house republican vote against the ph
